Bulrush Gates Blend Engineering and Design – With Beautiful Results

March 2018

We’ve just installed our first gates designed by a client – and they look beautiful.

The best bit though, is that they cost only a fraction more than ‘off the shelf’ gates, giving homeowners and businesses the option to create bespoke gates using their own designs and branding.

These clients came to us asking for a bespoke bulrush design, inspired by the lake they live near to. Our graphic designer turned this photo into a design and worked with our engineers to make it possible to laser cut the three pieces required for our clients’ home – electric gates, infill panel and pedestrian gate too.

It was a challenging one – we had a sloping driveway, curved brickwork and underground access to contend with but we overcame them all.

But they now have a secure and beautiful entrance to their home and wherever they are in the world, they can talk to people at the gates and give access using the wireless technology or via a keypad.

The client said: “Green Gate has done everything they said they would and we’ve now got gates we are very pleased with. What we liked about Green Gate was that they did all the clever stuff themselves – all the engineering, whereas other firms outsourced this. They were also able to have the gates laser cut, which gives a much better look than welding which other companies talked to us about. We wanted personalised gates but nothing that would make it difficult to sell the house later on, so we took inspiration from the bulrushes in the lake near to us.
We’re overjoyed with the gates, service and personalities we’ve met.”

Automating the vehicle gates using underground motors didn’t compromise design and the gates blend seamlessly with the driveway.

Green Gates’ Sales and Project Manager Mig Howard oversaw the project and said: “This was a complex project but one we were able to complete to a very high standard for our clients. We’re looking forward to taking other clients’ designs from their sketchpads to their front gates.”
